    A warning to our Old Poets Society critics.
    (in the form of a 'Tipperary')

    SOL's poets for posterity
    Write rhymes with great sincerity,
    And though their muse may seem obtuse
    With purpose simply to amuse,
    Mockers will be dealt with…
    with great severity!

    About horthes furthest northest.

    A horth is a horth of course off course
    Off course, up north, oh dear, that's worse
    These ditties have to rhyme you see
    At least so said old Hank Hain-ey
    And Mr Ed spoke too and said "Agree-gh"

  • Seven Seas of Asia
    Board » Sailonline Race Committee » Race proposals
    And here's another proposal from bonknhoot.
    Seven Seas of Asia.
    Not oceans (even though The Seven Seas are oceans).
    So not quite ocean racing, but long challenging races nonetheless in all sorts of climates and weather patterns.
    Apologies not quite the precision of kmz files, but enough info for OPS to create a course from.

  • Re: Santa Monica Nueva Regatta
    Board » Sailonline Race Committee » Race proposals
    Yep, Dan, that's another option and I agree with you on all points:
    - hate marks in the sea
    - more people using routing
    AND importantly
    - Qt Vlm router now uses 'SOL' interpolation (u/v), so wind in router matches wind in SOL exactly.

    So many words said, what can I add? We will miss you, Finn, your always good humour and matter-of-fact approach to life, and all the working together on set-ups, particulars, race descriptions, time lapses and all the rest. In your memory we plan to race a PYOC from Copenhagen to Svendborg. We will all think and talk of you more then. An announcement will be appearing soon.

  • Santa Monica Nueva Regatta
    Board » Sailonline Race Committee » Race proposals
    I think the bottle of Ron Miel has fallen by the wayside at this stage, so why not rename this iconic race Nueva, and take the opportunity to make some course changes for longer legs and more strategic choices and less processional races, as per the attached and set up here on the Beta: http://beta.sailonline.org/breezy/run/987/

Newport Bermuda Race 2022


The 635-mile biennial Newport Bermuda Race is one of the oldest regularly scheduled ocean races, and with the Fastnet Race and the Sydney to Hobart Race, it is one of the three great classic races of the yachting world. Founded in 1906, this the 52nd running of the Bermuda Race can also be participated in online.
Entries are invited for one of the four divisions:
Double-Handed Division:
Jeanneau Sun Fast 3300
St. David's Lighthouse Division:
First 44.7 Asymmetric
Gibbs Hill Lighthouse Division:
Reichel Pugh 64
Finisterre Division:
Delphia 47
Details for each yacht are available in the ‘Particulars’ links below and be sure to register your online choice on the Bermuda Race Online link – there are some fine prizes to be won.
As in real life, you can only sail one boat in one division, so choose your virtual yacht carefully, and because of the unusual (for SOL) 4-division nature of the event, please note results will not count towards ANY Sailonline Rankings.

Geraldton to Cape Town 2022
A race in the Southern Indian Ocean is always entertaining, especially in a Riptide 50. Traditionally the course would be West to East, to take advantage of the prevailing winds, but this time the SRC is challenging us to an E-W course, from Geraldton in Western Australia to Cape Town in South Africa. A brief 4800nm!
